Hi Everyone!!! It's Method Monday Challenge time again at InStyle Stamps!! Whoohoo! This week is my turn to create a tutorial so it would be fabulous if you all play along!!
This week's Method Monday tutorial is a "Square Coat Card". Basically, it's a gate fold type of card with a twist. . .a "coat" wraps around the base card and closes with a ribbon at the center!! For my card, I decided to use my "Pam and Buster" image because Pam is gorgeous and Buster. . .well, he is adorable. I colored my image and my background using my Copic Markers.
Anyway, stop by InStyle Stamps blog! To play along, post a comment on the InStyle posting of this tutorial with the link to the picture of your card from your blog site, SCS photo, PCP photo, or photo album. If you're uploading your card at PCP, tag it with "InStyle" or "ISSMM1-26" so it'll be easy to find.
You don't have to use InStyle stamps to play. . .just follow the challenge! Have fun!!
This will create a flap on both ends of the "coat".
Punch the corners of your card base, "coat" and 2 x 11 1/4" strip of designer paper
To create a "washer", punch a card stock with the 1/2" circle punch. Punch two circle shapes.
Fold the "coat" at the score line, the center strip should be centered at the front of your card Adhere the circle card stock to the ends of the 2 x 11 1/4" strips as shown in the picture
As an option, rather than creating a washer, you may use a large brad
Punch a hole through the center of the washer using a 1/8" hole puncher
Decorate your 5 x 5" card base as desired
Adhere the 5 x 5" card to the "coat" centered as shown in the picture
Thread a ribbon through the front strip as shown in the picture
